I made It!

June 3rd, 2022 at 11:50 pm

Wow time flies. Today marks one year since I left my job. I took a leap of faith, I had no plan, and no job, all I knew was I was sick of being emotionally abuse and risking my health. One year later, I know that this was the best decision I’ve made in a long  time. 


Over the year I’ve managed to decrease my blood pressure, later getting off high blood pressure meds, pay off two student loans, bump my savings, drastically, because I was literally able to bump my salary almost 100%. 


Took a few vacations and basically put me first. I’m thankful and I know that it’s only by the grace of God that I survived. Was I nervous, scared etc? Hell yeah, but I made it. 


In financial news, I picked up a few more index funds after adding to my IRA. I’ve applied for a ton of gigs, I got one hit and this weekend I’ll submit a few samples of my work. I was also able to get some work in for client, about $900 this week and $500 last week. The good thing is my monthly expenses are $1300, so this covers July and I won’t need to touch my savings šŸ˜€. I was so worried when I lost my big client but things are working out. 


I also picked up another article so that’s $100 in gift cards. 


All in all, all is good.

    Life is too short to stay in toxic work environments. Good for you. This week will make mark one week since I accepted my new position & Iā€™m so much happier for it. Not to mention the increased income!
